Brittani Welch, a sophomore student graduating in May with an associate of arts in teaching, has already earned an associate in general studies. She will transfer to Texas Women’s University in the fall to pursue a degree in history with 4-12 grade and English as a Second Language (ESL) and special education certifications. Ultimately, she plans to earn a master’s of arts in teaching and return to Grayson College as a member of the history faculty.
Hannah Lowe is also a sophomore and will complete an associate in general studies in May. She will transfer to the University of Texas at Arlington in the fall to complete a bachelors in education with a certification in ESL. She will then seek a masters in educational leadership and policy.
“I’m so incredibly proud of these students,” said Government Professor Mary Linder. “They work diligently throughout the year to create a better quality of life for themselves and others. They excel in the classroom and contribute significantly in their communities.”
Each year, approximately 100 outstanding community college students are selected from the top 50 community college districts in Texas to be honored as members of the All Texas Academic Team. Members of the team represent the best and brightest students who excel in academics, leadership and service.
During a medallion ceremony and reception hosted by the University of Texas System and The Texas Association of Community Colleges (TACC) at the University of Texas at San Antonio campus on Friday, March 30, students received a certificate and medallion. At the reception, they had the opportunity to speak with university representatives from various institutions across Texas.
